Mom brought this recipe home with her many years ago after a visit with her sister-in-law, my Aunt Irene.

The amounts listed are purely suggestions, so don't be afraid to experiment. Isn't that how you make the best casseroles ever? =^..^=

Ingredients

some
boned cooked chicken
6 oz
(1/2 pkg.) egg noodles
10 oz
pkg. frozen broccoli pieces
large can(s)
condensed cream of mushroom (or cream of chicken) soup
1/2 can(s)
of milk or water
some
shredded cheddar cheese

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mist a 13 x 9" baking dish with cooking spray. Set a large pan of water on the stove to boil.
2
Tear chicken into smaller pieces and put them in the prepared baking dish. Set aside.
3
When the water in the pan begins to boil, add 1/2 package of egg noodles AND the frozen broccoli. Cook 10 minutes or so, until they are done to your taste.
4
Drain the noodles and broccoli, then return them to the pan. Add the large can of soup & ~1/2 can of water. Stir it all together well.
5
Pour the soup & noodle mixture over the chicken.
6
Top with shredded cheddar cheese. I start with about 2 cups, but I usually add more, if I have it.
7
Bake the casserole at 350 degrees F. for about 20 minutes or so, until the cheese is melted and the casserole is bubbly.

NOTE: When I find chicken breasts on sale, I usually buy LOTS. Then I cook & freeze some of them for quick meals, such as this one, or the Chicken Enchiladas I still need to add to this site. =^..^=
